Welcome to the official website of the
West Jersey Rose Society

Guests are always welcome!

  The society meets the third Wednesday of the month,
except January and July.
Meetings start at 7:00 pm and are held at Medford Leas
off Route 70 in Medford, New Jersey.


The By-Laws Committee has suggested several changes to the WJRS By-Laws so that selection of Trustees and Officers will more closely coincide with the change in our fiscal year to a Calendar Year. The proposed revisions have been sent to all members by separate email on February 1 from President Terry Palise. Please review those changes as it is important to have feedback from all our members as they are subject to approval by our membership.

Rose photography is the most fun and creative new focus of our local and district rose shows. Come and learn from Curtis Aumiller, a creative and talented rose grower and photographer. Curtis Aumiller, Consulting Rosarian and Horticulture & Arrangement Judge, is also the American Rose Society National Photography Judge. Curtis will show you how anyone with any type of camera or cell phone can take great rose or garden photos.
He will discuss opportunities open to you to share your photos in local, district and national shows. Curtis will also share some prize-winning entries of our local and District members.
Come on out and have lunch with friends, learn more about rose photography, see some beautiful roses - and maybe win a door prize!
